Brittany M Loy, Rachel B Britt, Jamie N Brown
Phantom limb pain (PLP) occurs in up to 85% of patients who have undergone an amputation and remains difficult to treat. Memantine is a N-Methyl-d-aspartate receptor antagonist that has shown benefit in pain syndromes. The objective of this systematic review is to evaluate the evidence for the use of memantine in the treatment of acute and chronic PLP. MEDLINE (1956 to May 2016) and Embase (1957 to May 2016) were queried for articles that characterized the clinical outcomes of patient(s) treated with memantine for PLP...

We conducted a systematic review to evaluate worldwide human English published literature from 2009 to 2014 on prevalence of opioid misuse/abuse in retrospective databases where International Classification of Diseases (ICD) codes were used. Inclusion criteria for the studies were use of a retrospective database, measured abuse, dependence, and/or poisoning using ICD codes, stated prevalence or it could be derived, and documented time frame. A meta-analysis was not performed. A qualitative narrative synthesis was used, and 16 studies were included for data abstraction...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the analgesic effect of botulinum toxin A (BoNTA) injections in patients with myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) who were previously treated with the local infiltration of anesthetic and steroids (LIAS). The study included a retrospective phase and a longitudinal open-label prospective phase, which were conducted on consecutive patients with MPS previously treated with the local infiltration of anesthetic (levobupivacaíne 0.25%) and steroids (triamcinolone 40 mg). Eligible patients were treated with a single intramuscular injection of BoNTA (Botox; Allergan, Inc...

Robert P Waxler
Living with pancreatic cancer is always an adjustment, an attempt to find balance and direction in a world of the sick and the healthy. It is also a journey into unknown territory, a search for beauty, a battle of life against death, eros struggling with thanatos. In this narrative, you will find personal details of the life of a pancreatic cancer patient, his daily struggles, his treatments, his medications, but you will also find his search for the meaning of life itself embedded in his unfolding story, his attempt to come to terms with the questions of why we live and what we might consider to be a genuinely fortunate life...

Stripped of any sense of comfort or dignity on that hospital bed, my 84-year-old father, my best friend, was enduring raw, intrusive medical procedures against his own wish; defenseless, vulnerable, agonized. A feeding tube went in through his nose; catheter tubes drained urine out of his bladder; a suction pump drew out fluid from his airway. A needle jammed into the central line, making it impossible for him to turn his head. Dialysis took over the job of his kidneys. But no painkillers were given for fear his weak heart could not take more chemicals...
